Kids are back at school, college classes are starting back up soon, and if you listen very carefully around the camp, the sound you hear is the staff taking a nap and resting up after a very busy summer.
Despite the current economic hardships, God continues to bless Prescott Pines, and we had even more kids attend our Frontier Village and Youth Camps this summer, than last year. Last year we added a second Youth Camp to our summer roster, and were amazed this year when we were only fifty kids short of both weeks being completely full. We were able to partner again this year with the Angel Tree Ministries, and had 60 kids who all have at least one parent in prison, come to camp and hear about the life changing salvation and love Christ offers. In addition, as our Heart Partners Scholarship program continues to grow, we were able to give a record 47 scholarships to other kids who would not be able to attend camp any other way.
This summer we saw 80 kids in our programmed camps receive salvation, and 108 who made recommitments in their walk with Christ. We are continually in awe of the ways God has decided to use Prescott Pines, and the lives that He changes on these grounds.
